The Deep Foundations Institute will annually hold a Young Professor Paper Competition beginning in 2005 as a means to help bridge the gap between practice and study. The criteria for entering this competition are as follows:
All professors with abstracts submitted will be included in the paper competition, unless the subject matter is deemed inappropriate. Papers will be judged based on their submitted drafts. Comments will be offered to the winning paper author for preparation of the final version.
The primary author of the winning paper will be invited to attend the DFI Annual Conference on Deep Foundations to present her/his paper. Conference registration, two nights of lodging and a $750 stipend for travel expenses will be provided to the winner. Both the winner and First Runner-up will have their papers published in the conference proceedings and receive a library of up to 20 DFI Publications and a gratis two year Individual Membership in DFI.
